On Aug. 20, DePaul will select potential winners in random drawings from among all eligible entries received. Review the full contest rules for more information.

Please keep in mind: In the spirit of caring for each other and for our surrounding community, DePaul will require students to be vaccinated for COVID-19 when the 2021-22 academic year begins. This requirement includes all undergraduate, graduate and professional students in all degree programs starting in the Fall 2021 term.
